A common accident that occurs in Shopping centres are slip, trip and fall accidents. Many of these incidents could have been simply avoided.
Shopping centre employees carry out risk assessments of the company premises so they are able to locate and remove any potential hazards such as loose carpet or flooring tiles. Any potholes on shopping centre grounds should be identified and repaired promptly.
As well as identifying hazards there should be preventative measures, such as handrails, anti-slip mats and anti slip painted/coated surfaces.
Shopping centres should have a policy for adverse weather conditions. If there is any ice, snow or frozen surfaces they should apply salt or grit in order to control these slippery areas to prevent any slip, trips or falls.
If you have been injured after tripping, slipping or falling whilst out shopping, and feel that the shopping centre could be liable as they did not maintain a safe working environment, then you could be entitled to claim compensation.
